Sand Rivers Selous

Life in the Selous Game Reserve

Hi. We live and work in the Selous Game Reserve, overlooking a wide bend in the Rufiji River. People from all over the world visit us, and tell us how lucky we are to live here. We're inclined to believe them.

Return to the Selous!

Getting on the plane in Dar Es Salam, we were already tingling with excitement to see the incredible Selous again, after the long rains had blessed every living thing with much needed water. Flying over the beautiful bush we could already see how dense everything had become and the beautiful lakes were bursting with life. We couldn't wait to land and to start exploring again!

Stay posted over the days ahead as we get the lodge ready for our first clients of the Season!

(Amazing to see so much water below)

(The force of the Rufiji River opens up small channels across the land)

(One of the main channels that feeds Lake Makubi on the right. When the water levels are high, the river bank breaks, spilling water into the lake, feeding the eco system that lasts through the whole dry season)

(Plenty of water for all the Hippo to hide in!)

(A very familiar sight for us. One of our favourite game drive routes and view points at Lake Makubi, with the Rufiji River in the background)
